Seen dozens of lists and read hundreds of posts here about how 'Sticky Fingers' is the favourite Rolling Stones album. Is it? I remember vividly buying it on release when I was a young teen and thinking it was incredible. It was the first Stones album I bought in 'real time' and that added to its allure I suppose. I remember too reading the long interview in Rolling Stone with Keith Richards about the same time while listening to the album. Played it plenty over the years. But it started to lose its glow for me some time ago. 'Brown Sugar' was not the thrill it once was. 'Bitch' was getting generic. 'Sway' started dulling me out as did the bloozey 'You Gotta Move'. Even duller was the overlong 'Wild Horses' There's still a few things on it I like. 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking' is a groove and 'Moonlight Mile' is beautiful but, as a whole, 'Sticky Fingers' leaves me a bit cold now.
